The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
For über-Potter fans, this tiny volume of fairy tales, the very storybook Dumbledore left to Hermione in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, is a must. The book tells five wizarding tales: "The Wizard and the Hopping Pot," "The Fountain of Fair Fortune," "The Warlock's Hairy Heart," "Babbitty Rabbitty and Her Cackling Stump" and "The Tale of the Three Brothers." The final story introduces the Deathly Hallows, a vital piece of the Harry Potter series' final edition.
